The “Last Light” Riesling block is on the sloping East border of Bald Hills Estate, so named because it receives the last rays of the sun as it disappears in the West. Pruning and tying down of the vines forms an arched shape to promote even shoot distribution and plenty of space for bunches to ripen.
The berries are gently pressed and undergo a long, cool fermentation period in stainless steel. The aim is to preserve the natural vibrancy and ripeness of the fruit through minimal intervention.
Richly flavoured off dry wine with floral notes and hints of mandarin blossom on the nose.
Delicate and charming, the mandarin flavours are to the fore followed by a gentle acidity and an indefinable hint of spice.
